A game keepers role has changed greatly over the last decade and it now incorporates lots of education and engagement involvement to a wide audience range.
Charlie one of our NYMMO game keepers has just completed a morning as guest speaker at the Ryedale Carers Support “Farmers Breakfast”. The group watched the “Year in a life of a game keeper” power-point presentation,
and enjoyed chatting to Charlie.
Ryedale Carers Support is a registered charity (number 1076716), based in a rural part of North Yorkshire, whose purpose is to provide practical and emotional support for carers, the people they care for and older people living on their own. The service provided by volunteers, supports carers and those being cared for in their own home. It enables carers to have a well-earned break and maintain a life away from their caring role, whether this is social or work related. Volunteers also relieve the social isolation experienced by many older people living on their own in a rural area.
One of our projects is called, ‘Farmers Breakfast’, this is a monthly meeting of predominately men who would like the opportunity to meet people like themselves. Many of them are lonely and isolated. We invite a variety of speakers to come and talk to the group on subjects ranging from northern butterflies, the Rosedale railway to estate management.
Ryedale Carers Support could not offer any of its services without our amazing volunteers. If you can help us with a couple of hours a week or a fortnight, to provide friendly and supportive company we would love to hear from you 01751 432288.
